Financial advisors have a variety of options they can use for content generation and dissemination, but many of these “content distributors” are actually selling the same content to multiple firms. Sites like AdvisorStream and Lead Pilot have large databases of quality articles to share on social media, but none of it is actually your content. If you’re going to post articles on Linked In and Facebook, they should be original content that speaks in your voice.
Another drawback to third-party content is that it doesn’t build any SEO value for your website. In fact, if you post articles that other firms are publishing from the same source, you might actually hurt your search position. Google Panda, an update to the Google algorithm first implemented back in 2011, prohibits and penalizes websites from using duplicate content. Using it will ensure that the only new prospects you see will come from random Facebook traffic. Is that what you want?
